Big Day for Foster Not Enough In Texans 20-17 OT Loss To Cowboys

Houston Texans v Dallas Cowboys

The Texans rally Sunday fell short as Dan Bailey’s 49-yard field goal in overtime was the difference as the Cowboys beat Houston 20-17 in overtime.

Houston came back from down 10 in the fourth quarter, and momentum was on their side after Bailey missed a kick at the end of regulation, but it was not enough.

Bailey’s kick was set up when Tony Romo threw off his back foot with pressure coming and Dez Bryant made a spectacular leaping catch for 37 yards.

The Cowboys (4-1) won their fourth straight for the first time since 2011, while the Texans fell to 3-2 on the season.

The fourth quarter rally was set up by RB Arian Foster, who had 157 yards rushing and a tying 1-yard score with 41 seconds left in regulation.

“Football is a brutal game,” Texans J.J. Watt said. “It’s brutal on your body. It’s brutal on your emotions. To fight back the way we did, to show that resilience, it was good to see. But at the end of the day, we lost the game.”

Houston had just 86 yards total offense at halftime, but Foster had 117 rushing himself in the second half. He went 48 yards on consecutive plays, the latter from 15 to put Houston ahead 7-3 in the third quarter.

It was not enough though, as the teams battled back and forth before Bailey put the game away with the game-winning kick in OT.
